NullDC 1.0.4 r150 with Shenmue fixes by masterchan777

Postby masterchan777 » Fri Apr 18, 2014 5:08 pm

Hello everyone,

The latest build of nullDC has a couple of bugs that affect the gameplay of Shenmue, one of those bugs causes the emulator to randomly crash at some points during the gameplay of Shenmue II, and the other bug produces a really annoying high-pitch buzzing sound when playing What's Shenmue with CDDA Audio enabled.

I managed to fix both bugs, recompiled and uploaded the fixed nullDC r150 :

I think it's the best version of nullDC out there, especially for Shenmue, since it has all the advantages of the latest release as well as the newly implemented fixes, give it a try if you like and let me know what you think.

Update :
A version with a different background art :

Note: I highly recommend deleting nullDC.cfg file, this will reset nullDC's settings back to default. You also need to install BOTH X64 and x86 versions of VS 2013 Dll files. which can be grabbed from this link : http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784

Thanks for your time.

Make sure you have the required bios files in data folder, if you have them from an earlier build you can simply copy the data folder from there, if you don't then google is your friend ...

I am having problems with it.

I usually have half a clue what to do but nothings working

Is this release specifically for Shenmue 1?

I tried the new beta release and Shenmue 2 eng 99min

Hi, no this build should work with other games too, just make sure you have those files in the data folder :

dc_boot.bin
dc_flash.bin
dc_flash_wb.bin
dc_nvmem.bin
fsca-table.bin
vmu_default.bin

if you have them in your data folder then everything should run normally.

Your a legend MasterChen777 :D

Does this fix any other gameplay elements, as I would love to play Shenmue II again.

Thank you C.. :)
Shenmue II is very playable with this release, there are a couple of issues I am aware of though, one is that nullDC doesn't emulate the arcade gameplay of After Burner in Shenmue II and that will cause the emulator to hang in an infinite loop, also there are a few very minor graphical glitches here and there but nothing too serious.
I will look into those issues when I have more time and try to provide a fix if I manage to get them fixed since Dreamcast emulation isn't 100% perfect yet.
Please let me know if you know of any other issues with nullDC especially with the Shenmue series.

Thanks mate that's awesome, I'm not too fussed about After Burner, just Shenmue II.

I'm just trying out What's Shenmue now. :D

Edit: I can't select any controller plugins it just keeps crashing I'm trying to select the keyboard config and it just keeps crashing saying NullDC32.exe is not working, or is this because I need to copy them over from an existing NullDC release?

Doesnt seem to be working with Windows 8.1 i get the following error

"This program cannot start because MSVCP120D.dll is missing from your computer."

had a scan on the internet which told me to install http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784 which did not work.

any suggestions?

UPDATE.

Fixed. restarted and it allowed me to install the x86 version and all is working now.

Try deleting nullDC.cfg file and start nullDC again, then you can reconfigure your plugins and that should resolve any existing conflicts with your device ..

I'm a bit of a noob when it comes with debuggers, but can you point me if this edition has a debugger with breakpoint abilities?
